U.S. Classic Guitar President William Jenks is excited to present the legendary Eliot Fisk and his wife Zaira Meneses in a livestream concert, Sunday, October 4 at 1 p.m. (HST). Tickets are $20 and the concert will be streamed via a private Zoom link. More ticket info below.
The performance will take place from Fisk and Meneses’ home in Boston and William Jenks will host and broadcast these events live from his home in Hawaii thanks to cutting edge technology. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear an exclusive program by these incredible artists including works by Chopin, Brouwer, Bach, Barrios, and more which will only be available for this event and for 72 hours after purchase. This special concert program has never been seen before and will not be uploaded to YouTube in its entirety after the event airs. The majority of the proceeds go directly to help support the artists during a very difficult time.
Eliot Fisk is known worldwide as a charismatic performer famed for his adventurous and virtuosic repertoire. After nearly 50 years before the public, he remains as his mentor Andres Segovia once wrote, “at the top line of our artistic world.” Eliot Fisk was the last direct pupil of Andres Segovia and also studied interpretation with the legendary harpsichordist Ralph Kirkpatrick at Yale University, from which he graduated “summa cum laude” in 1976, and where, directly following his own graduation in 1977, he founded the guitar department at the Yale School of Music.
Zaira Meneses is hailed by The New York Times as, “a captivating edge full of colors and feelings” and is recognized as the first female Mexican classical guitarist with a successful career as a soloist, teacher, and director in the USA. She was also the first female guitarist to record a new 45-minute album of J.S. BACH compositions where she includes her own guitar transcription of the well-known Partita No.2 in D minor.
